Epson S041637 reviews

Velvet Fine Art Paper (13 x 19", 20 Sheets) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best matte paper I've ever used. I bought a pack of this paper because it has a great reputation, and man, I wasn't disappointed! My style has always been high gloss and bright colors, but with this paper I've discovered a more subtle style I didn't know I had in me. It produces the most vivid colors and highest contrast of any matte paper I've tried. Great for black and white images. Durable - No issues with loose fibers causing white spots in the finished image - something I've experienced with cotton rag papers. Still it's matte, so it's somewhat susceptible to surface scuffs. More durable than Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, but not as scuff-resistant as Epson Premium Luster.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good paper, sloppy shipping. VFA is great and I use it for all of my art prints, but BH is not the place to order it. In most cases your order will ship in a single corrugated box without any padding, save for a sheet of packing balloons along the top. The paper slides around freely inside the box, which in some cases tears open. Bent or smashed corners are to be expected. Exchanged items will likewise be shipped in the same packaging, and thus it sometimes requires weeks to receive what you ordered in the condition advertised. I have been ordering from them for years and this is a habitual problem that they make no effort to correct.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to tell which is the print side. Nice paper and a good price from B&H but it really is hard to tell which is the print side. The packing does not explicit identify other than saying its the whiter side, be nice if the package said this side up. Generally I've found the side facing the package flap is the print side, but I would not rely on that. Best way is slightly dampen a finger tip and feel a corner, the tackier side is the print side. For this reason I generally prefer MOAB Entrada which is 2 sided but I do think Epson Velvet Fine Art has slightly more range. But that may be just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paper I've ever used! I do most of my own printing (for 10 years now) as I feel it's part of the creative / artistic process. Well, I've had my R2400 for over 2 years before finally trying this paper... What was I thinking??? The output on this paper is absolutely incredible! I've gone back and printed several of my favorite pieces with this paper - it's amazing how much richer, sharper and vivid they are now. The first noticeable attribute of this paper, it's weight! Nice! It is heavy - it simply feels as if you've got the best pro paper available! I believe, once you try it, you'll want all your prints on this paper - despite it's higher price. I'll soon be upgrading to the 2880 with this paper, I cannot wait to see the results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional This is the most professional grade paper I've used. The images dried relatively quickly, and it enhanced the color of the images. It's great for framing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not exotic, but a great paper. First of all, I'm a matte paper user. I have tried other papers but I keep coming back for the consistency and beauty I get with Velvet Fine Art. I prefer this in sheets to Somerset Velvet on a roll, though of course there is a premium to pay and size limitations that exist. I really love the texture of this paper as well for looking at prints in the hand. Most end up under glass of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small adjustments but good paper This is a super good product for its inexpensive price. Nice and thick. I adjust printer so blacks are a bit blacker with this and also I up the saturation on the color in photoshop first. it is a matt paper so the blacks need pumping up. Especially if your used to gloss. Scuffs easily, so I keep Glassine paper over the prints until they are sold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another impressive Epson paper Epson seems to always have a matte finish paper that compares well with other company's usually more expensive offerings. Velvet Fine Art has been around for a while but it never really hit my radar until recently. I normally use Hot Press Natural because I like the smooth matte surface and the thickness and weight. HPN also is OBA-free so it should remain exactly as printed for decades to come if treated well. Velvet Fine Art gets pretty good Wilhelm ratings for archivability using Epson's Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks, my standard setup. VFA is a little thinner and lighter than HPN. It does have some OBAs but it appears to be a minimal amount since the whites are not super bright. The matte surface of VFA is a little more textured than HPN's smoother finish. Velvet Fine Art costs a little less than Hot Press Natural as well. So I gave VFA a try with some photos I had previously printed on HPN and Canson Rag Photographique (a paper that looks an awful lot like HPN but costs an awful lot more). Truthfully, the only difference I could detect was the thickness of the paper and the very slight increase in brightness and surface texture. Colors were identical, using the same print settings for Lightroom (increasing sharpness, brightness and contrast for matte paper). I still prefer Hot Press Natural for the weight and thickness but Velvet Fine Art has now found a place in my regular paper supply for both the look and the economy.
